    H60 v2 to H80i really worth the investment?

    +5% performance gain, louder (stock fan/config (H60 to H80i)) and you get Corsair Link™ ports... that's about it. ~4.5GHz and above the gain will bee bigger.

    For overclocking, yes.

    I'm not gonna use the fans that comes with the h80i.

    The performance fans will be almost as noisy as the stock fans, you should be looking at the silent fans with PWM instead. The H80i is not that much over the H60 that it will bump you from a nice 4.6 OC to a 5.0 OC, for that you will need a H100i or better tbh.

    Won't putting better fans on the H60 be a better investment. I'm just curious

    With a medium overclock yes. The H60 (stock fan) is audible but not really loud in the first place.

    H60 is a rad with high density fans while the H80i on the other hand is low density so they work better with low speed fans, my choice would have been easily made. Also running a 3930K with full clock/voltage with a room temp of 30° & NF-F12's@900rpm, the water temp really really gets hot and that's why I prefer low speed rads. While the max water temp is 50°, I don't really have a lot of room to play with above 4.6GHz to still maintain silence >.<

    Finally managed to upgrade my audio to a Sennheiser 363D + Creative Sound Blaster Z. The headset came with a 7.1 Dolby surround adapter but I gave it to my wife.

    ...I'm officially a Sennheiser fanboy.

    Thanks! I am quite happy with how my case turned out, spent the long weekend painting it. I really like the look of the motherboard I have in there (I am a sucker for orange!) but I could use a little more cable management, I was in a bit of a rush to get the gtx 780 in there and see how she performed. (which is excellent)

    I am so tempted to save up for a new windforce card, the new revision of the cooler is such an improvement on the last one (even just aesthetically).

    I'll add them to the long list of "things I don't really need but really want but can't afford right now"

    You going back to a Titan then? Or are you waiting for the 9970 with its rumoured 4096 shader processors?

    likely 780 classifieds hydrocoppers or lightnings with custom blocks. current cards are good but i'm still voltage limited for maximum overclock. (
    maybe another swap if AMD really gets their shit together but i deem that unlikely.
